Facebook Lets Same Sex Couples Get Married, Introduces new Icon
Facebook has let same sex couples get married on Facebook for a little while now.
However yesterday they made an update to the site where if 2 men get married the marriage icon shown is 2 men next to eachother. If 2 women get married then it shows 2 women next to eachother.
Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes married his long time partner, Sean Eldridge on the weekend.
Whilst this is a simple change – I think in the years to come, Facebook and the community around us will put further pressure on Western governments to reconsider same sex marriage where not the case.
I think we will also see Facebook support more causes like they have done with the Organ Donor option and now this update.
